§ 56. Mr. Granville
asked the Minister of Production whether he can make any statement with regard to the setting up of an Allied War Production Council in Washington?
§ The Lord President of the Council (Sir John Anderson)
Pending the Minister of Production's return from Washington, I have nothing to add to the statement which has already appeared in the Press about the Combined Production and Resources Board.
§ Mr. Granville
Can we have any information as to when this Council will begin its functions? Will there be a similar Council in this country, and will there be Ministerial representation from this country on the Washington Council?
§ Sir J. Anderson
I can only refer the hon. Member to the statement which has appeared in the Press.
§ Mr. Shinwell
Is it intended that the Minister of Production shall return shortly? Is there not a great deal of work for him to undertake here?
